http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fritz-chip
The Fritz-chip is a nickname for the hardware component of a software-execution monitoring system. It is sometimes meant derisively by those opposed to digital rights management (DRM) in a trusted computing context. It was named after former United States Senator Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, who sponsored several pieces of legislation aimed at protecting the interests of intellectual property (ie, copyright and software license) holders in the digital age, including one (the CBDTPA) that might mandate the inclusion of such a chip in every computer.
